Day 17 – I Am Afraid.

Between this week and next week, I am probably going to try my Back Squat PR. Remember on day 1, when I said I was going to work my ass off for the next weeks because I wanted a 100kg back squat? I literally worked my ass off, to get an ass. But let’s get…

I’m doing the #Sweat12WC

First things first. I’m not gonna quit CrossFit. Far from it. I am using the #Sweat12WC to improve my CrossFit performances. Because let’s be honest. I was a good beginner at CrossFit because I had been running for many years and had been playing with weights for about 2 years, but now I am just…

I wasn’t there to quit.

What happens when you try your PR and it does not go as you wanted it? It hurts. It hurts real bad. You are in the gym/box and you cannot start crying. You cannot scream. BUT it hurts. That is what happened to me, a while ago. I had just reconfirmed my PR and wanted to…

Camilla’s Winter Playlist

You guys have Apple Music? If so, add me! If not, and you want some music inspiration, I created my new to-go playlist for everything, from workout to long road trips songs. Hope you’ll like it! This is me, Keala Settle & The Greatest Showman Ensemble A Million Dreams, Zif Zaifman, Hugh Jackman & Michelle Williams Tightrope, Michele…

Winter Favorites

Isn’t winter your favorite time of the year as well? I love it — especially when I’m inside with a plaid on, next to a fireplace and with a glass of red wine in my left hand. But also out there on the slopes, skiing and drinking bombardino with my friends. Anyway, I decided to…

10 Facts about Me

You know that one of my new year’s resolutions is to write a post every working day of the week – at least – right? So I thought that despite having published almost 1000 posts, I never really shared a list of 10 facts about me… therefore, there you go! I speak 5 languages and…

Welcome 2019

New year, new life? I don’t know honestly. I tend to get the hype of new year’s resolutions, writing down endless bucket lists that I sometimes manage to complete, sometimes not. This year I decided to focus on smaller things, to focus on smaller steps, instead of the big picture only. It’s going to be…

Day 1 – about that Back Squat

For most of the people I know, this is day 365. This is the end. But for me, this is the beginning. Last Saturday, I did my back squat PR, nailing a 90kg rep and failing a 93kg. This is my start. This is what I am going to work on for the new year…

Sea VS Mountains

Have you ever had to answer the question sea or mountains? I tried many many times, without any success at taking a final decision. Because the truth is that I like them both, in different ways. I love living in the mountains, and I feel at home any time I climb one up. I grew up surrounded by the mountains,…

That Protein… ROCKS!

I usually hate protein powder. I cannot help, but find its taste disgusting, that fake sweet aroma makes me sick before I can even think about drinking a shake. Given that someone has recently made me notice I might not get enough protein to sustain my active lifestyle and my fitness-related goal (which is a 100kg back squat), I…

December

Tutte le belle intenzioni di scrivere un Editorial il primo dicembre sono andate a farsi friggere quando, con un foglio di carta bianco davanti a me, non sono riuscita a scrivere nessun obiettivo che volessi condividere sul blog. Perché ovviamente ci sono obiettivi — insomma, ce ne sono sempre — ma tra l’esserci e il condividerli c’è…

My very own Rollercoaster

Vorrei poter dire, in maniera esauriente, che montagne russe siano stati gli scorsi mesi, un continuo di ups and downs, voglia di mettersi in gioco, paura di non farcela, voglia di avventura, ansia che a volte frena. Ma potrei scrivere oltre mille parole e ancora sarei convinta di non aver dato la giusta percezione delle scorse…
